Community grants now open
ROUND one of Moyne Shire Council’s 2023/24 Community Assistance Fund is now open for applications.
The well-subscribed annual program aims to build stronger communities and deliver benefits to residents and visitors through grants to community-led projects and facility improvements.
Moyne Shire mayor Karen Foster said the community assistance fund was a valuable council program and she encouraged all eligible community groups to consider applying.
“This fund helps us support even more groups in our community with their important work,” Cr Foster said. “Up to $3000 is available for small community-based projects or activities, and up to $15,000 for larger purchases or capital works.”
Four different funding streams are available so it is important people head online to read the eligibility criteria.
One of the mandatory requirements is applicants must first speak with a council program officer before lodging their application.
Applications close on Monday, September 11. Information on eligibility and how to apply can be found online at www.moyne.vic.gov.au/Community-Assistance-Fund.
